    I'm gonna need to come back to this but WHAT IS HAPPINESS WATCHING THIS SHOW? This feels so strange! Bye Ramsay. Sansa watching the dogs tear into him! :up:

    The last remaining giant was the only real sad part I wasn't expecting honestly. I knew Rickon wouldn't make it to the finale the moment he was captured.

    I have so much to say but it's all so garbled forgive me!!

    Petyr saves the day with the Knights of the Vale. Everyone forgot all about him. All my friends were shocked. Not me. I called it and I'm so happy that it went down as I thought in that instance! I really thought we'd have at least one more casualty on our side though. I really thought Tormund was toast a minute.

    Grey Worm slicing their throats in one swoop was so badass. And was it just me or was Yara totally hitting on Dani? Heeeeee!

    Also Davos is going to have her ass hung.

    More as I think. I'm just too shocked and awed that this was a good episode. That makes me really fear for the finale!!!

    It wasn't just you :) I loved their interaction.

    I was so happy with how Ramsay died!

    I haven't had knots in my stomach watching a battle scene since Saving Private Ryan's opening.

    But man was that a satisfying episode! Once Ramsay mentioned that the dogs haven't eaten in seven days, I knew it was gonna bite him in...

    The Mereen stuff was great too. Finally Drogon's siblings join the party! Not to mention Yara (who knew she was bootylicious!). Dany definitely was on their side once Theon mentioned it's Yara who wants to rule the Iron Islands. I don't think it would have gone well the other way around.

    Davos putting two-and-two together was not a surprise since they showed Shereen in the 'Previously on'. But I think Melisandre is safe. He's going to need her in case something happens to Jon.

    Agreed, although in truth any way he could die other than old age or in his sleep would have made me happy.

    I can't believe next week is the season finale. Noooooooo!

    He talked up the dogs, then didn't let them go?

    Where is Ghost? I was half expecting him to take out Ramsay.

    I honestly had my knees hiked up to my chin and kept peeking at the tv from over them just waiting on something bad to happen.

    And this I was punching my own hand yelling HIT HIM AGAIN LET SANSA DO IT

    I'm way too invested in this show, glad to see you all are too. :D

    I think Ramsay meant after they surrendered and were back at Winterfell.
    As for Ghost I am so thankful he wasn't there. I was going to commit harry carry if I had to watch another direwolf die.

    I have to admire Ramsay's leadership skills. You would think that after 98% of his men had been killed (many of them at Ramsay's own order), at least some of the remaining 2% might think "Hey, maybe I'm on the wrong side." But no, they all seemed to stick with him until the end!

    OK, Sansa has finally redeemed herself.

    I knew the episode would be a corker when the battle in Mereen was how they started it! Any other show, that would have been the season climax!
    A heart attack while making love to a beautiful woman with whom he was deeply in love? :D

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't quite see that as a realistic possibility.

    I called pretty much everything in this episode:

    1. Dragons torching the ships? Check. (They found the missing CGI budget to boot. :) )
    2. Nights of the Vale riding in Lord of the Rings style to save the day? Check.
    3. Rickon dying? Check.

    Overall a good episode.


    And they made their own door! :p

    I kept think Braveheart throughout the battle scenes. Was half expecting Jon to scream Freedom! As he emerged.

    Nobody has mentioned yet that the dragons had to break out. Huh. Back in the day, if someone had confirmed "Goth", there would be a lot of strutting around these parts.

    Edit! Nope - mentioned just above.

    Very satisfying episode overall. There were a lot of predictable pieces, but it was still good. Once again, Tyrion gets some of the best dialog.

    Heh...I thought exactly the same thing.
    But you said "any way he could die," not "any way he could die that's a realistic possibility"! ;)

    LOL. Unfortunately, I don't think Rickon ever saw that movie.

    So I guess Bran is the last legitimate heir of Winterfell...

    The Vale was predictable and we all knew they were coming. Just like Lord of the Rings and every other book/movie... "Couldn't you have arrived a few hours earlier. Sheesh!"


    Great episode and glad to see Bolton get his. Also liked the dragons torching the fleet.
